Built for women, our 27-speed Novara Carema has a sport geometry, Shimano Sora drivetrain and a vibration-damping carbon fork that make it ideal for a century as well as club rides and fitness.

  • Features

    • Aluminum frame features shaped seatstays and top tube for enhanced comfort and performance; tapered head tube improves strength and handling precision
    • Carema geometry is optimized to offer a comfortable, women-specific fit
    • Fork boasts a tapered alloy steerer with a 1-piece alloy crown for strength and stiffness where it counts; carbon legs help damp road vibrations and reduce weight
    • Updated Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs offer responsive shifts throughout the 27 gears, even when in the drops, enabling you to spin the right gear for the grade
    • Tektro long-reach caliper brakes offer fender clearance and deliver dependable braking power
    • Eyelets for fenders or a rack let you outfit the Carema for wet-weather or commuting performance (fenders or rack sold separately)
